In the Tennessee Valley, our Nation has the world's most fully developed
and regulated river system. Strategically placed dams give TVA engineers
an almost fingertip control of the tremendous quantity of water that finds its
way into the reservoirs, or lakes, behind the dams.
Much in the fashion of a train dispatcher handling train movements, the
engineers impound water or release it through turbines or spillways.
The Tennessee Valley Authority's larger dams and steam plants are open
to the public and visitors are cordially welcomed during visiting hours. TVA
Public Safety Service Officers will describe points of interest.
The visitor to TVA will be able to see giant generating units that are mak-
ing power to strengthen the Nation. More than half of TVA's power output
is used in national defense industries, chiefly by the Atomic Energy Commission.
On main-stream lakes he will see large freight tows on a deep waterway now
connected with the Nation's 9,000-mile inland waterway system. He will see
